when i was i born, i was black.
when im out in the sun, im black.

when im dead, im black.
when u were born, u were white
when ure out in the sun, ure brown.
when ure sick, ure green.
when ure dead, ure purple.
so why do u have the fxxxing nerve to call me a coloured?'
wonder if they have one for the chi.

dim sum dollies in steaming!
when u put a cast like selena tan, emma yong, pam oei n hossan leong together wat do u expect? a comedy of course. to be exact, a carabet musical comedy. yes, the 100 min play was exactly wat ive expected. excellent comic timing, colourful costume changes, witty lines..... they didnt let me down. basically, dim sum dollies touches a wide range of topics, from periods to politics. the only common factor is that they r all centered ard women.
at the end of the day, wat attracted me most was not their witty lines nor catchy tunes but the set design. the moment i took my seat, i realised that the backdrop was made up of the outline of the head of the statue of liberty. when the play slowly unfolded, the significance of the set began to hit me. everything abt the play was abt women liberation. like how selena tan as an IJ student asked her mom 'when i was young, i asked my mother wat would i b..... ' ended up being scolded by her mother. she then went in search for a role model; marilyn monroe n mother theresa in order to figure her way thru life. or how later in the play, selena tan as megawati (megatitties) wanted her countrymen to know that she is actually capable of running the country. liberation was 'realised' in this particular sc 'nursery rhyme' where jill (from jack n jill) hated her irresponsible bf n wanted to roam the lands wo an escort, little bo beep who was sick of tending her lost sheep n wanted a pet which she could call her own n lastly, little ms muffet who disliked the 'fucking' the spider n wanted a bf. all ended well when they switched roles, jill tended the sheep, bo beep sat on the tuffet while muffet had jack. so, after 100 mins of seeing such on stage, i marvelled at the brillance of ivan heng who not only was the director but doubled up as the set designer.
oh, seeing that dim sum dollies is such a feminist play, its not a wonder that they chose our little gay boy, hossan leong. grin.
this sums up all that ive learnt in my 3 yrs in uk.
